 And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place: And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them:  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.  Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
|Elevation - Consecration|
In Contrition, may my prayers lift to You, Lord in the smoke of the incense. Forgive me for the times I have failed to love you as I ought...to put You first. O Lord, You know how many and how great are my failings. You know how often I sin, from day to day, from hour to hour, in what I do, and in what I fail to do. O Lord my God, I resolve no more to provoke You, and to desire nothing more than You, for You are alone truly lovable. If I should offend You again, please grant me the strength to find favor anew in Your eyes and to lead a life more pleasing to You. Amen.
In Thanksgiving, I thank you for you for the gifts of the Holy Spirit on Pentacost, Your remaining with us in the Eucharist and for the vocation of the Priesthood, that brings You to us. Lord, bless your priests and seminarians.
In Supplication, I pray for vocations.....
